Yahoo Answers is a new way to find and share information. You can ask questions on
any topic, get answers from real people, and share your insights.
How to ask a question?
Once you’ve logged in, just:
Click Ask at the top-left corner of any page.
Type in your question. (Similar questions may appear underneath as you type, so
if someone already asked the same question, you might not have to.)
Add any details that will help people answer it.
Select the most relevant category for your question.
Decide whether you want us to send an email sent to you whenever someone
answers your question. If not, uncheck the box next to: Yes, email me answers
as they are posted.
Click Preview. If the question looks ok to you, click Submit.
How to answer a question?
Each question has a 4-day "open" period during which you can post an answer.
To answer a question:
Go to any question in the Open Questions section and click Answer this
Enter your answer in the Your Answer field and include the URLs of any sources
you want to reference in the Source(s) field.
Vote as Best Answer
Best Answer will represent only the “best” of those answers posted during the 8-day
period as determined by the Asker or the community vote. A question becomes a
Resolved Question when a Best Answer is chosen. After a question becomes Resolved
it stays in Yahoo! Answers and is available for searching and browsing*. The Best
Answer remains open to receive comments and ratings from the community.

Points and Levels
To encourage participation and reward great answers, Yahoo! Answers has a system of
points and levels. The number of points you get depends on the specific action you
take. The points table below summarizes the point values for different actions. While
you can't use points to buy or redeem anything, they do allow everyone to recognize
how active and helpful you've been.
Levels are another way to keep track of how active you (and others) have been. The
more points you accumulate, the higher your level. Yahoo! Answers recognizes your
level achievements with our special brand of thank you's!
And finally, as you attain higher levels, you'll also be able to contribute more to Yahoo!
Answers - you can ask, answer, vote and rate more frequently.
